8 Tips to have Best Summer Experience

Summer is the season of fatigue and sweat. In summer you tend to feel so lazy. This is the season when you should pay that extra attention in restoring your health and well being. It is advisable to follow some diet & regimes in this season. If you follow these tips, you are sure to have the best summer experience this season.

1.Drink More Water-

Yes, drink up and loosen up. We mean water, lots of it. The problem with summer is, it makes you sweat a lot, making your cells lose water quickly.

To maintain moisture levels in your body and not feel weak or faint due to dehydration, you need to keep a check on your drinking (water) game and get it right.

Ideally, drink at least 8-10 glasses of water every day and include lots of fresh juices and fruits with high water content in your diet.

2.Always use Sunscreen Lotion –

It is important to use a suncream lotion of at least SPF 30 in order to protect your skin from harmful UV rays. For sensitive skin, a mineral-based sunscreen is best. Don’t sit in the sun in peak hours between 10am and 4pm in order to minimize UV radiation.

If you are planning to be out in the sun for a long period of time, reapply suncream every two to three hours.

3. Use UV protective Glasses & Umbrella

While going out in sun it is advised to use umbrella for protection from direct sunlight. Also use UV protective sunglasses to avoid entry of UV rays directly into eyes which causes eye problems like dry eyes, inflammation of eyelids, wrinkles & dark circles around eyes.

4.Take A Healthy Diet-

One most consume healthy diet – an excellent mix of fruits, vegetables, nuts, cereals, and pulses. A fine balance of all the nutrients that your body requires.

During summers, increase the intake of raw or boiled food. Include as many fruits and veggies in your meals as possible – go for salads, smoothies, and juices.

Make sure you are getting enough calcium as well. Also, nuts are an excellent addition because they are excellent for your skin.

5.Avoid Alcohol Intake-

Summer’s a great time to skip drinks with hard alcohol and choose a light, chilled alcoholic beverage (unless you are pregnant or should not drink for health or other reasons).

6.Avoid carbonated & Caffeinated Drinks-

Also avoid carbonated & caffeinated drinks, these drinks causes overproduction of urine. Overproduction of urine is responsible for water loss from body, which ultimately results in dehydration.

7.Wear Loose Clothes

Needless to say, to stay cool you need to wear loose clothes so that there is good air circulation. Ditch your synthetic dresses and trousers and stick to cotton. Even while heading out, keep yourself covered from the harsh rays.

8.Use Aloe Vera for skin problems-

Aloe vera comes to the rescue for a lot of skin problems. During summers, especially, it turns into a soothing balm, cooling off your skin after a long day in the sun.

Aloe vera is anti-inflammatory and moisturizing. It calms the skin and nourishes it intensely. It also contains antioxidants that protect your skin from damage.

Either pluck fresh aloe vera and scoop the gel from the leaf to apply it to your skin, or you can choose from the many aloe vera products available in the market.
